England have scored a dramatic last-gasp victor to stun favourites Australia in the final of the netball at the Commonwealth Games.

They trashed India 6-0 to claim the accolade and with it, bring up England's 100th medal at the Games on the Gold Coast.

The men had three pool matches yesterday and needing to finish top of the pool to qualify for the semi finals they went three for three with wins over Zambia (54-0), Kenya (40-7) and Canada (33-7).

But the Kiwis comfortably wound down the clock for victory and the gold medal.

"Canada are a great team and we knew they were going to bring us something and that is good for us as it tested us".

Canadian captain Ghislaine Landry opened the scoring in their semi clash with the defending Olympic champions. "I had no idea what was going on. but I am so proud of the girls", Goss said.

They were leading the Scots 7-0 at the break, but then scored three well-worked tries to ease into a 26-0 lead before the men in blue managed a consolation try.
